That's how I read it first time, I was like :shock: :shock:
...then I saw the "...knows"
Yes we should sell him and promote wilshere. Last season without arshavin we were 5th. This season we are 4th with a game in hand on 3rd. Sad as it is this is progress. Maybe people should be looking towards the rest of our squad and asking questions of them.
I still see arshavin as our best attacker although admittedly he has dissapointed this season. Maybe he settled in too quickly and raised expectation too high?
You've lost me but i mean when there wasn't even a goalie there.
Arshavin's role doesn't necessarily require physical brawn or a towering player, its the other areas of the field like central midfield, and upfront that we are lacking. I personally think its a good thing that he is frank about what he sees and is calling out the club on it. Even though his performances haven't been quite top notch just yet he is undeniably a world class player with a winning mentality. I think he'll be off this summer if we don't improve our position.
Probably wouldn't play for the invincibles on his arsenal evidence and not really world class. He plays because he can score goals and we sadly don't have enough people who can anymore.
As to why his comments are annoying; he's like the moany wanker at work who no matter how good things are going or no matter how much everyone is working to make them better just simply *****es.
Arshavin should shut up and work on improving his own form. ****.
Apparently Arshavin and the Russia team got drunk and generally misbehaved in the company of some prime Russian ass before and after both Slovenia matches. Akinfeev and Bilyaletdinov the only ones to spend a quiet evening with their girlfriends
Arshavin >= the bee's knees.
And how on earth do you know anything about Pat Rice's character??
Maybe he agrees with Wenger on some levels. The man has been at the club for donkeys years and who is to say he doesn't agree with some of Wenger's thinking as well..?
Amazingly I have never seen Rice give an interview so it is hard to judge his view on anything. But he does deserve respect and we can't just gossip about what say he has.
The big man has a 100% managerial record at arsenal and wears shorts in -10 weather. What is there not to love?
Arshavin has denied that in an interview.
Does he look like someone who has any influence on Wenger?
Not really but lets be realistic for a second here. Wenger is more than happy with Rice as his assistant and lets pretend that he doesn't have any influence. You think Wenger would bring in someone that would try and overrule him? No way.
Besides we cannot be 100 percent certain he has no influence and we never will know either. Rice is an Arsenal legend and it's important to have those guys around the club.
Del Boy, Pat Rice, all due respect to him, is the biggest yes man I have seen in football.
arshavin moans about the same **** we moan about, why is that wrong? because he has a brain and two eyes and can see what is obvious? because he's not a deluded arsenal cheerleader?
if you're sick of him, then you don't get it. there's a reason why good players like henry, gallas, arshavin get fed up with all this nonsense and playing with inferior players. it's like you're working at a place that refuses to upgrade your computers from dos 3.0 despite being loaded, and you're expected to outperform your competitors who all have blackberrys and windows 7.
It's wrong because he is inside the changing room. He isn't a fan in the pub or on a message board. It's Arshavin that doesn't 'get it'. :roll:
He's a moany little **** about everything too. He feels like quitting because he lost a game. The tax is too much. The weather is bad. It's too expensive in london. My hair is ****. Blah blah ****ing blah.
he talks too much to the media. so what? only an idiot (not you) would think that just because, say, van persie's never complained about the tax rate to a dutch reporter, he must think it's fine. do you think everyone else in the squad thinks the squad is perfectly fine as is? should we all just not talk about it and then the problem will go away?
how come sagna isn't getting any grief for suggesting we need reinforcements in january? my bet is that none of the more senior players believe we have the squad to win the league, especially not without van persie. they're not stupid.
I think a guy with his work ethic should learn to talk less and run more.
On the topic of Pat Rice, I get him to wave at me while he's setting up the cones before every game.
Is it worth saying that Pat Rice is one of the biggest problems with Arsenal right now?
Only an idiot would keep bleating about crap that he can't change. Like Patrick said, talk less, run more.
I wouldn't know and that is the point, I don't need to know. They are a team and some things stay inside. Eduardo is short of confidence right now, do you think it makes sense to basically call him out for being rubbish against Chelsea?
Do you think comments about being physically short against most teams will help in any way next time we are getting the **** kicked out of us and the ref is just thinking "don't worry, it's only arsenal, they don't like it up them and they are just weak anyway".
Unless I am mistaken, Sagna said that we need to find a solution and it was the media who twisted that into meaning that he was demanding signings.

The more senior players should buck up their ideas, shut up and get working because simply put, they are part of the problem. Sagna and maybe Gallas from this team would play in the one that last won us the title.
